Kamala Nehru Park, Mumbai

In Mumbai at the top of Malabar Hill is the beautiful park, Kamal Nehru Park. It is named after Kamala Nehru, the wife of India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.



It covers an area of 4,000 square feet. The park has a lot of greenery with a small play area for children. 



Here, the interesting structure is a shoe-shaped structure, called Boot house. Other noteworthy structure is Ashok stumba. The shoe lace is beautifully tied in 'X' style.



From the park one can have the great view of Chowpatty Beach and also Marine Drive (Queen's Necklace). The panoramic view of the city attracts lot of visitors all through the year.

Nice pictures. This is one thing I like about Mumbai. It may be the busiest of cities but it has good amount of greenery as well. Besides the different parks, it has it has its own forest in the form of BNP.

What a fun place. The Boot House reminds me of the nursery rhyme about the Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe.

every big city should have a little oasis of greenery in its center so that its citizens can have a place to relax.

Despite the park embellishing Mumbai's visage for ages, it's still one of the most enthralling of places to drop by. The peace in there is very serene. :)
